Abstract:

A mathematical decision model for information service planning was derived from administrative goals. Program plans are assessed in the context of performance goals for six areas available staff, available budget, program effectiveness, functional requirements, basic service requirements, investment programs to insure future progress. The technique is an extension of linear programming that calculates optimal solutions to decision problems in the areas of resource allocation, policy analysis and program evaluation according to a set of preemptive priorities established by management. The report includes a program in FORTRAN 4 for computing solutions. Author
